Overview

There is one overdrive circuit to this day has been the most talked about, the most sought after, and the most mythical of them all. It’s big, it’s expensive, and it has certainly earned its place at the table. Wampler has painstakingly and faithfully reproduced that magical tone in all its glory in an unbelievably small package, and its name is Tumnus.

Tumnus is a versatile addition to any setup, any style. Stack it with another pedal to help push or shape the total amount of gain, use it as a stand alone overdrive, or use it as a slightly dirty boost to push the front end of your amp over the edge. You can even use it as a buffer, because just like the original this pedal is not true bypass. Instead, faithful to the original, this pedal contains a buffered bypass tone legendary in its own right.

The Tumnus’ streamlined 3 control knobs (Volume, Gain, and Tone) allow you to quickly dial in your tones no matter what the gig calls for. We aren’t going to sit here and claim it has magical parts, or we sourced out 60 year old diodes that make it perfect, but we are going to say that during our research we looked at everything available and then only used the parts that Brian chose to replicate that amazing tone.

Let’s face it, not everyone has room for a four-legged beast on their board. This slender biped slips in and out of a myriad of tight situations. Now you can have the tone. Now you can have history. Now you can have it all without having to sell your prized gear possessions. The Wampler Tumnus, standing up for that amazing tone, but without the outrageous claims often associated with it.

    Comments about Wampler Tumnus Overdrive Pedal:

    WOW, what a great pedal! I waited to play 2 shows to see how it plays in the mix, and I have to say "Hat's of to Brian @ Wampler"! I play most of the lead work in a well establish blues band in N. Calif. and this fit the bill perfect! Pedal Chain: Tuner, Wah, King of Tone, Tumnus (90% of the time on), Zen Drive for Bridge Boost), HWTS8 for "Mid-Boost", (Drive to to "0" + Volume Boost). What I found is the Tumnus is very versatile re. Volume (it has a ton on tap), Gain (plenty available & natural) and the Treble Sweep is very effective. For my taste (Strat into a number of custom PTP/HW Fender Style Amps) I stack any other pedals after the Tumnus so it adds to the Tumnus, rather than distorting it's tone. Very sweet pedal!!

        Great overdrive, sounds natural to me

        Comments about Wampler Tumnus Overdrive Pedal:

        This is my first Wampler pedal. I have recently gone on a pedal spree and am again seeking the perfect overdrive for my tastes. I want something that sounds natural and is responsive to playing dynamics. This is darn close to the sound I seek. It is warm and rich yet cleans up nicely when you back off while letting the guitar tone come through. I am happy with this pedal, and it is small so does not take up too much space on your board. Go Hoosiers!
